The hotel and its interior are designed by some of the biggest names in the design industry.
The first floor and my room were designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

Rive Gauche, Paris. # 4

My favorite building in Paris (Usine de la Société Urbaine D'Air Comprimé (SUDAC)) are now part of Frédéric Borel’s, Paris Val-de-Seine Architecture School.
Originally the building was used for producing Compressed Air. It was build in 1890 and is (was) one of the most beautiful industrial relics in Paris.
I really don't like the new building by Frédéric Borel, which has been added to the old factory. If you ask me, it's a waste of space.
